New property for the BetterBidding hotel list.

Since we will be attending different events all over the city, we aren't picky as to which zone we stay in. I've been researching this trip since June and had a cancellable back-up reservation at the Marriott Financial Center downtown at a rate of $201 per night utilizing Marriot's Look No Further rate guarantee program.

Although we booked our air fare separately, Priceline's vacation package (air + hotel) was a very essential tool in scoring this hotel. I would periodically research the vacation package for our travel dates to gain insight into hotel prices. By deducting the air fare portion from the totel package rate, it's easy to come up with a ballpark figure for the hotel portion. Yesterday, nearly every 4 star hotel in NYC had a package rate between $1000-$1400 for 3 nights with air fare for 1 person from Boston to New York. The air fare portion of the package was worth $109, which meant the hotels were all running $300 and up per night. But then I noticed the package at the 4* Fashion 26 hotel in the Chelsea zone was $771, all taxes included. Backing out the air fare, this meant the per night hotel price (pre-tax) was under $200. Since I had several rebids, I lowballed and started the bidding at $160 which produced a counteroffer to add $35 ($195). My second bid of $162 was accepted. So yet another example how Priceline will often accept less (in this case a lot less) than their counteroffers.

THAT is a very attractive win! Wow. I would want it as well but I think that hotel has only one room with two double beds and I require bedding for 4 peeps.

But a very swanky looking win.

On second glance at the hotel list, this must be the former 3* Wyndham Fashion 26 hotel. It is no longer listed on the Wyndham website, so I assume it's now independant and was upgraded to 4* after the transition.
